Vodafone and Microsoft Lync up


Vodafone has added Microsoft’s Lync collaboration to its one net business service in a move that the mobile operator said will improve the way businesses keep their employees connected on the move.

One Net, a cloud based communications service, allows fixed and mobile connections through a single platform meaning Vodafone can bring a greater speed and flexibility to business communication.

Integrating Lync will allow SMEs to ‘click to call’ from a tablet, mobile or PC allowing businesses to set up meetings, share files and speak with colleagues without the need to switch between devices.

Phil Mottram, Vodafone’s Enterprise Director said: “SMEs need to be able to respond quickly to customer requests wherever they are, or risk losing out to the competition. Vodafone is the only company that can provide a fully integrated suite of mobile and fixed communications services from the cloud on its own network.

“With One Net and the new Lync collaboration we can offer UK businesses the complete communications package that they need to succeed today.”

One Net already offers businesses an integrated voicemail box and the ability to make calls from a landline and mobile, regardless of which number is used. Adding Lync to this service will allow Vodafone to offer even further integration.
